Clean Teeth With HELLO KITTY & @FireflyTB - Smiles And Independence

My kids ORAL HYGIENE is extremely important to me.  I mean, a CLEAN MOUTH IS A HAPPY MOUTH, right?  I do the best I can, to make sure they brush, floss and rinse twice a day (morning and night) when they are with me.  As they get older, I let them take on more responsibility for making sure they are taking care of their teeth to the best of their ability, all on their own.

All products for this review/feature were sent free of charge by the company!  I was not offered any monetary compensation by posting my honest opinion about these products!

But products like FireFly Toothbrushes are products that make my job a little easier and their responsibility, a little less demanding.  As you know, or maybe you don't, these toothbrushes actually light up (have a built in countdown timer in lights) and count for your kids, to make sure they are brushing for the right amount of time and getting their teeth REALLY CLEAN!  LOVE IT!  

It's accountability, without mommy having to be in the bathroom with them while they brush.
We just received samples of their latest product line, featuring Hello Kitty.
We received the Firefly Hello Kitty Ready Go Brush and the Firefly Hello Kitty Anticavity Mouth Rinse.
As you can see...our daughter was thrilled to not only try them out, but she loves her adorable new toothbrush and mouthwash.  For heaven sake...what little girl wouldn't love this?  I mean...the products are pink, girly and have HELLO KITTY on them! 
Using this toothbrush is simple.  They simply apply toothpaste and push the button on the handle and start brushing...that's when the countdown begins.  The light starts out green, turns yellow as they are approaching the end of their brushing and then red...when they have completed their brushing.  
LOVE IT!
The mouthwash comes in an adorable container.  We love this type of mouthwash because it comes with a "cup" to use, instead of "SHARING THE BOTTLE".  It also limits how much they will use per rinse, so less waste with each bottle.  Our daughter loved the flavor too ("melon kiss")...she said it didn't burn like some mouthwashes do.  This means she will actually use it!  
LOVE IT!

CLICK HERE to see all of the FireFly products! 
 I always recommend them to my friends, with little ones, because it makes teeth brushing a fun and much more independent activity.  This is a WIN for everyone!

Please...Please...PRETTY PLEASE! #PutaRibbononIt

WE need your help guys!  Those of you that know me, know that I am not a fan of contests on Facebook that involve voting...because I truly think it's not fair to those of us "normal people", who don't have a million friends, willing to click through a link and hit the vote button for them.  

It becomes more of a popularity contest, than a creative talent contest... which isn't always fair for entries that really deserve a #WIN.
Ribbons & Bows....A Mommy Just Knows...Call It "Intuition"....But I Think This Entry Could Wrap Up The Competition! #PutARibbonOnIt

With that being said...my sister has entered a contest (#PutaRibbononIt) and she needs your vote!!  LOL!  If she wins this  prize (which includes a trip to San Diego), it might offer this Auntie (ME) the chance to spend time with them that isn't on calendar right now!  Since they live in Texas, and plane tickets aren't free, we only get to spend a minimal amount of time, a year...together.

So if you want to make my day...and my sister's...please click the photo above!  It will take you to the page that you simply need to "LIKE" and then CLICK on the VOTE button by her picture.  
SUPER SIMPLE and easy...and we will both be very, very grateful!

THANK YOU!

Plus...this AUNTIE just thinks her little niece is SIMPLY ADORABLE too!

I saw this trailer today and had to share with you guys...

The Wet Brush - I LOVE THIS THING!

My girls have very long, naturally wavy and very tangled hair when they get out of the shower.  If they don't use a lot of conditioner, when they are showering...untangling their hair is even more of a challenge.

All products for this review/feature were sent free of charge by the company!  I was not offered any monetary compensation by posting my honest opinion about this product!
I've searched for combs and even brushes that will work to make this "EVENT" less emotional and more enjoyable.  Every once in awhile, we get lucky and we have found one brush that does a decent job...but nothing like what I am about to tell you about!
The Wet Brush arrived...and just in time for BACK TO SCHOOL hair styles and fuss!
We tried this brush out tonight, for the first time...in this video:
I kid you not, I hadn't tried it yet and wasn't sure it would even work...but it really did work like a cinch!  No pulling, no tugging, no fussing, no grumbling (our youngest is more vocal about the tangles being untangled) and the brush glided through her hair with ease.  
HOW AWESOME IS THAT?
I LOVE THIS THING!  I wish I had found it years ago, instead of battling the snarls and knots that could have been simply and easily resolved with The Wet Brush!  Our daughter walked around after we did this video...brushing her hair and giggling about how easily it combed through her hair!  
She loves it too!

SERIOUSLY...check it out for your family!  CLICK HERE!  You might simplify your daily hair routine by using an detangling brush like THE WET BRUSH.

A Mouthwatering Feature - @WeightWatchers Frozen Dessert Bars That Will Sweetly Cool You Down - #GUILTFREE

Summer might be wrapping up, but the hot weather seems to stick around a bit longer...at least where the kids and I currently live!  
I've been proud of myself, so far, to maintain a decent budget when it comes to running my air conditioning...but there are just some nights that are too hot to not cool the place down!  And one of the ways that I've also managed to fight the heat without spending lots of $$, is indulging on a sweet treat that won't weigh too heavily on my conscious when the HEAT IS ON outside!

All products for this review/feature were sent free of charge by the company!  I was not offered any monetary compensation in return for my honest opinion about these products!
As always, I am delighted to try out new #GUILTFREE frozen dessert options from Weight Watchers.  These freezing cold, sweet treats...are the perfect thing to cool my body down and offer my sweet tooth a little bit of satisfaction! 

JUST A WARNING...the following pictures might cause excessive drooling and an immediate, mouthwatering desire to run to your nearest grocer and purchase a box of these FROZEN TREATS for yourself!
I received two boxes of their bars and I'll admit, both looked fantastic before I even took them out of the wrapper...especially because today was yet another hot day.
My first taste test was the Dark Chocolate Dulce de Leche Bars.  
OH MY GOODNESS!  *eyes roll back in head*
The mixture of dark chocolate with the sweetness of the caramel ice cream?  A LITTLE BIT OF HEAVEN IN MY MOUTH!  No...seriously...I could savor each and every bite of that bar.  The best part?  I don't have to feel the least bit guilty about eating it...because it works with my diet...not against it.
My second taste test was the Divine Triple Chocolate Bars.  Now...I must say...for those of you who are CHOCOLATE crazy...this is going to be your Weight Watchers Bar of choice!  
These bars are extremely rich and chocolaty...and soooo delicious!

YES...they are as good as they look on the boxes!

I'll be honest...the Dark Chocolate Dulce de Leche Bars are my favorite...but both were exquisite to my taste buds!
BE ON THE LOOKOUT for these in your local grocery store and if you can't find them...request that they start carrying them immediately!  
You'll thank me later...

My Magical Mermaid - She'll Never Want To Get Out Of The Bathtub Now! @Zurutoys

My kids all love their "bath time".  They always have...since they were little bitty.  It seems, as they get older, there is less play and quicker in's and out's.  But there are some days...when it's just fun to take a warm bath, take a few fun toys (my kids like to play with legos, cars, dolls, etc.) in the bathtub.  Especially my two youngest, who still really enjoying some good old fashion imaginative play.

All products for this review/feature were sent free of charge by the company.  I was not offered any monetary compensation by posting my honest opinion about this product.
So when we were offer the "My Magical Mermaid" for a review...I knew this would be something my youngest daughter would be ALL ABOUT.
This little robotic mermaid actually swims in the water.  Her little tail fin flutters and she swims about.  She comes with three different weights, which all weigh differently on her and help her swim under water too.  She can back float and she can glide across the water with ease.  She really does make swimming look fun and easy.  
My daughter is going to be totally in awe of this adorable little Mermaid.
In fact, she's super cute too.  We received "Shelly"...and I love her pink tail, her bright hair and the fact that she comes with TWO EXTRA BATTERIES.  Oh yeah, I love that she actually works too!  Which you know you're going to need...because the more your child plays with her...the more fun it will become.  They will figure out how to use the weights, have her doing all sorts of tricks, etc.  
So much bath time magic can happen with this fun little Magical Mermaid Shelly.
I honestly didn't fill the bathtub up with much water (we're on water restriction), so I didn't use the weights to see her dive down or swim below the water...but you get the basic idea by my video that she does swim very gracefully across the water.  I'm not sure that many girls will have access to an aquarium or tank (that they sell separately), like their advertisement video (see at the beginning of this post)..for her to get that type of depth in her swimming...but the concept is awesome if you do!
